    Big East

    In the podcast yesterday, Matt Norlander said that UConn won't get rid of football because it already makes money for the University so that should only increase the revenue from it.

    Big East

    That doesn't make sense to me though because why would they want that? It would make more sense for them to just say no to SLU. If you let SLU in, they should want SLU to be successful because that helps everybody in the conference. An automatic W is great until it doesn't do anything to help you get into the tournament and could hurt if you lose. Plus it brings down the entire conference NET or RPI. That just seems like a lose lose to both SLU and the Big East. I get initially being a junior because they get the additional money but not to commit to a length of time just doesn't make sense to me. We should make them want us and a lot of that in my mind is up to Dr. P and especially somebody like Dr. Chaifetz showing that they are willing and have put money towards the athletics currently to do what it takes to be successful. That is part of the junior status, we would have to be able to show we have money to survive those 5 years or whatever and still be competitive and then we can get our share of the revenue.

    I absolutely agree with Gary. Make it happen Dr. Chaifetz!

    Recruiting - 2020 Class (Optimal Vision Class)

    Listening to Danny Mac podcast, Ford said he was with Tom Izzo last night so looks like he was watching Vashon.

    Glad to see Moy-stradamus is back.

    GDT Rename them the Slukies

    Man this place is so depressing on bad nights. Was this a bad loss? No question but have to remember we only have 4 returning players from last year. There will be bumps along the way, Ford said that nonstop before the season. I also don't think having Isabel keep running the offense is the best. Thatch has been getting better, need to get Jacobs more time and more chances to run the offense. Coaches are high on him. I think Ford has done a great job the last two years getting the most out of a team that has continued to improve through the year. We still have some good games left with Oregon State and Florida State. Let's win them both.

    Recruiting - 2020 Class (Optimal Vision Class)

    The KC article was written by Alex Schiffer. Typical Mizzou J school graduate who claims they cover the team without being a fan yet every article comes across as a fan blog. Just like every article or tweet BenFred has put out on Dru Smith not being eligible this year, pure fan point of view.

    MLS 4 the Lou

    I wouldn't be shocked to hear more from SLU law professor John Ammann if it passes tomorrow in the coming weeks about him trying to sue again to stop it until a vote can happen.

    Signed Recruit Thread 2018-19

    Pistol talked about this. He reclassified his freshmen year so technically is a 5th year kid so isn't eligible for the varsity team. They still play good teams he said. Sure he can elaborate more but here is what he said earlier.

    Recruiting - 2020 Class (Optimal Vision Class)

    I will be interested to see what recruits will be there this Saturday. Sounds like it is close to a sell out right now so would be a great one to get some of the local kids to the game. I could see the Mehlville trio making it.
